Step 2: Automate segmentation

Ask yourself

Is there an easy way to reduce the risk of spreading malware by segmenting groups of employees, guests, partners, and IoT devices?

Something to consider

Due to time-consuming manual operations, many IT teams find it difficult to apply segmentation effectively. With automated policy-based segmentation, you can reduce both threats and administration overhead.

Recommended solutions

Benefits: Get full control over which users have access to which resources, anywhere in your enterprise. Integrating with your existing ISE deployment, Cisco Services can help accelerate your transition to SD-Access.
